The Office of the Alabama 9-1-1 Board has been asked to make Ebola-related resources available to the Emergency Communications Districts. The following are links that are being shared on behalf of the Alabama Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. These links are for information sharing purposes only, so that the decision-makers for local centers can make the appropriate choices within their agency. NENA as well as APCO are posting resources on their sites along with Alabama NENA.
The purpose of this Request for Proposal (RFP) is to engage the services of a CPA firm and/or consulting firm that has extensive experience in providing audit services for evaluating connections established by telecommunication companies that pay the 9-1-1 fee. The deadline for proposal submission is October 31, 2014 at 4:00 p.m. The key contact for any additional questions, information requests, and/or coordinating visits is Jason Jackson, Executive Director of the Alabama 9-1-1 Board, at 334.440.7911 or email@example.com. The RFP may be downloaded by clicking on the .pdf file below.

With the exception of AT&T and C Spire, all wireless carriers have completed their conversion to ANGEN.
As of October 1, 2014 ANGEN has processed 570,299 wireless 9-1-1 calls with 145,969 of those in September. The addition of Sprint and Verizon contributed to the large increase each month which will somewhat stabilize until AT&T Wireless & C Sprire begin their conversions. Both are expected to complete no later than mid November 2014.
